When it comes to decorating, there's nothing easier than using a mirror to add light, depth, and interest to a space. Here are some designer notes on using mirrors in your home.
Mirrors create light and depth in any space: think of it as a window that you can move and place in the perfect place.

Try something new with your mirror: look at how it fills a dark fireplace in the off-season or as an alternative to a fire. Instead of hanging a mirror, try leaning it on a wall for a more casual look. You could even try using a mirror as a tray on a counter, coffee table, nightstand, or dining table.
Check the mirror before you go: any room could use a mirror, but it is a must in the foyer or entryway. Does yours have one?

Get the glow: use mirrors in a dining room to create warmth and romance. Since dining rooms often lack light, a mirror placed with candles can create an elegant glow.
Mirrors are art: try grouping multiple mirrors on the same wall, like art. Pay attention to the scale and style; they should be consistent. For example, don’t hang a small mirror on a large wall. Also look for interesting shapes and frame designs.

Reflect the outdoors: hang a mirror so that it reflects a nearby window. If there aren’t windows in the room, try hanging it to reflect a favorite spot in the room: a piece of art, or a distinctive lamp.
